Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide


(70 bar). Addition of Ru to this catalyst results in the in situ hydrogenation of acetaldehyde and

production of EtOH.13 The treatment of 2-(chloroethyl)phosphonic acid dimethylester with

diphenylphosphine affords 2-(diphenylphosphino)ethylphosphonic acid dimethylester, (7), which

can be used as a hemilabile complex ligand. Rhodium complexes of the type (MeO)2P(O)CH2CH2P(Ph)2RhL3 were obtained and exhibit excellent catalytic properties in the

carbonylation of methanol to acetic acid.14 Rhodium(I) carbonyl complexes containing

phosphino-thiolate and -thioether ligands are four times as active in catalyzing the carbonylation

of MeOH to AcOH as (1). The crystal structure of [Rh(SC6H4PPh2)(CO)]2 (8) has been reported.15




















The complex cis-[RhI(CO)(Ph2PCH2P(S)Ph2)] (9) is eight times more active than (1) for the

carbonylation of methanol at 185  C; the X-ray crystal structure of the analogous complex with

chloride in place of iodide was reported together with in situ spectroscopic evidence in the

catalytic cycle.16 A more detailed study of (9) showed that indeed oxidative addition is faster,

but that in this instance due to a steric effect the migratory insertion was also accelerated.17

Under mild conditions (10), [RhI(CO)(PEt3)2], catalyzes the carbonylation of methanol in the

presence of CH3I and water at a rate 1.8 times that for (1) at 150  C.18,19 The reaction is first order

in [CH3I] and zero order in pCO. The phosphine complex degrades to (1) during the course of the

reaction. Stoichiometric studies show that the rate of oxidative addition of CH3I to (10) is 57 times

faster than to (1) at 25  C. Complex (11) can be isolated and characterized. In CH2Cl2, (12)

reductively eliminates CH3COI. Complex (10) reacts with CO to give [RhI(CO)2(PEt3)2]. Catalyst

degradation occurs via [RhHI2(CO)(PEt3)2], formed by oxidative addition of HI to (10), which

reacts further with HI to give [RhI3(CO)(PEt3)2] from which [Et3PI]ỵ reductively eliminates and is

hydrolyzed to give Et3PO. In the presence of water, much less [RhI3(CO)(PEt3)2] and Et3PO are

formed. The rate-determining step of the catalytic reaction in the presence of water is CH3I

oxidative addition to (10).

A series of square planar cis-dicarbonyl polymer-coordinated Rh complexes with uncoordinated donors near the central Rh atoms for carbonylation of MeOH to AcOH have been

reported.20 The work of the Sheffield group (UK),21 in developing a deeper understanding of

the mechanism of the process, has been reviewed. The efficiency of methanol carbonylation arises

primarily from rapid conversion of (2) into (3), leading to a low standing concentration of (2),

and minimizing side reactions such as methane formation. By contrast, in the iridium-catalyzed

carbonylation, for which similar cycles can be written, the migratory insertion reaction is rate

determining. Model studies show that while k(Rh)/k(Ir) is ca. 1:150 for the oxidative addition, it

is ca. 105–106:1 for migratory CO insertion. The migratory insertion for iridium can be substantially accelerated by adding either methanol or a Lewis acid (SnI2); both appear to facilitate

substitution of an iodide ligand by CO, resulting in easier methyl migration. The greater stability

of [CH3Ir(CO)2I3]À compared with (2) accounts for the very different characters of the reactions

catalyzed by the two metals.

RhI carbonyl complexes [Rh(CO)2ClL] where L ¼ Ph3PO, Ph3PS, and Ph3PSe were synthesized

and their catalytic activity was found to be higher than that of (1).22 A series of novel group 9


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

transition metal complexes, [M2L2(CO)2] and [ML(CO)(PEt3)] (M ¼ Rh, Ir) containing the

P,S-chelating ligand diphenylphosphino-o-carboranylthiol (LH) have been prepared. The bimetallic rhodium carbonyl complex was characterized by X-ray crystallography and is much more

effective in the carbonylation of methanol than (1).23 Rhodium complexes of unsymmetrical

diphosphines of the type Ph2PCH2CH2PAr2, where Ar ¼ F-substituted Ph groups, are efficient

catalysts for carbonylation of methanol and have extended service life compared with

ligand-modified catalyst under temperatures of 150–200  C and pressure of 10–60 bar.24 Rhodium complexes of [Rh(CO)2Cl]2 with various ligands containing electron donors (amine,

carboxy, pyridine, furan, etc.) were evaluated as catalysts in carbonylation of methanol to acetic


Open-chain structures [ClRh(COD)PPh2-X-P(O)(OR)2] (COD ¼ cyclooctadiene; X ¼ CH2,

CH2CH2, CH2CH2CH2, p-C6H4; R ¼ iso-Pr, Me) were isolated and used to catalyze the carbonylation of methanol. FTIR investigations at temperatures between 150  C and 250  C suggest

that the phosphonate–phosphane ligand stabilizes rhodium monocarbonyl species and allows

the formation of free coordination sites to form dicarbonyl species, which is in accord with the

proposed hemilabile behavior of the complexes.26 The dimeric complex, [(OC)2Rh(Cl)2Rh(CO)2], undergoes a bridge splitting reaction with Ph2PCH2CH2SEt (P-S) to produce the

chelated complex, [Rh(CO)Cl(PS)] (PS ¼ 2-coordinated P-S), which on oxidative addition with

CH3I and I2 yields [Rh(COCH3)ICl(PS)] and [Rh(CO)I2Cl(PS)]. As catalysts they were found to

be faster than [Rh(CO)Cl(PS)].27

Evidence was shown for migration of an alkyl group in carbonyl insertion, and deinsertion

steps between the methyl carbonyl rhodium complex [{5:1-Indenyl-1-(CH2)3PPh2}Rh(CO)Me](BF4) and the acetyl rhodium complex [{5:1-(Indenyl-1-(CH2)3PPh2)}RhI(COMe)] by crystallography as well as by 1H NMR spectroscopy.28

Immobilization studies (see also Chapter 9.9)

In the carbonylation of MeOH in the presence of Rh-exchanged zeolites, the RhIII ions are

reduced to RhI ions, which lead to Rh-dicarbonyl and Rh-carbonyl-acetyl complexes.29–32 IrY

and RhY zeolites catalyze the carbonylation of MeOH in the presence of a MeI promoter. The

kinetics have been determined and IR spectra suggested that with the Ir catalyst the ratedetermining step was the addition of MeOH to the active species followed by migration of a

Me coordinated to Ir. With the Rh catalyst, oxidative addition of MeI was the rate-determining step.33 A series of EXAFS measurements was made to determine the structural basis for

the activity of transition metals exchanged into zeolite frameworks. Solutions of

[RhCl(NH3)5]Cl2 exchanged with NaX form a highly active catalyst (RhA) for MeOH carbonylation when used with an organic iodide promoter. Systems prepared from RhCl3 are far

less active. EXAFS spectroscopy from the Rh K-edge was used to follow the fate of the Rh

species for the two preparation techniques. The former is a mobile aqua complex, while the

nonactive catalyst is in the form of Rh2O3 crystallites.34 Rh and Ir trivalent ions exchanged

into faujasite-type zeolites undergo facile reduction to monovalent metal dicarbonyls. The

chemistry of these complexes closely parallels the more familiar ones in solution.35 Supported

mixed bidentate rhodium and iridium complexes derived from phosphonate–phosphanes were

studied for methanol carbonylation and hydroformylation of ethylene and propylene.36 Metal–

ion exchanged heteropoly acids of the general formula M[W12PO40] (M ¼ Ir, Rh, Pd, Mn, Co,

Ni, Fe) supported on SiO2 are excellent catalysts for the vapor phase carbonylation of MeOH

or Me2O to MeOAc at 225  C and 1 atm total operating pressure.37 In high-pressure gas phase

conditions, methanol and syn-gas mixtures can be converted to acetic and higher carboxylic

(C3–C5) acids on supported rhodium catalysts in presence of methyl iodide.38 Rhodium catalysts supported on ZrO2, carbon, a cross-linked polystyrene with pendant Ph2P groups, or PVP

have been tested as catalysts for the heterogeneous carbonylation of methanol in the bulk liquid

phase. In all cases, leaching of the catalyst into solution occurs.39 For the carbonylation of

MeOH to AcOH, the ionically supported complex (1) was equal in catalytic activity to the

homogeneous complex, and leaching of the catalyst could be minimized by suitable choice of

solvent and resin:Rh ratios. These experiments suggest a general application of anion-exchange

resins as a mechanistic tool for detecting catalysis by anionic species in homogeneous


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide


The preparation, performance, and characterization of Cu-containing mordenite catalysts for

carbonylation of MeOH under moderate conditions in the vapor phase and in the absence of

halide promoter have been reported.42 The copolymer of 2-vinylpyridine and vinyl acetate

coordinated with dicarbonyl-rhodium was used as a catalyst for carbonylation of methanol to

acetic acid and acetic anhydride.43 The kinetic study of carbonylation of a methanol–acetic acid

mixture to acetic acid and acetic anhydride over (1) coordinated with the ethylene diacrylate

cross-linked copolymer of Me acrylate and 2-vinylpyridine shows that the rate of reaction is zero

order with respect to both reactants methanol and carbon monoxide, but first order in the

concentrations of promoter CH3I and rhodium.44 Rhodium catalysts supported on a diphenylphosphinated copolymer of styrene and divinylbenzene (SDT) or poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) have

been tested as catalysts for the heterogeneous carbonylation of methanol in continuous long-term

vapor phase experiments under mild working conditions (P ¼ 80 bar, T ¼ 180–190  C).45 A novel

Rh-containing diphenylphosphinated styrene-divinylbenzene copolymer was prepared, characterized, and used as a catalyst for MeOH carbonylation.46 Porous C beads, prepared from poly

(vinylidene chloride) (PVDC), were used as supports for Rh catalysts for carbonylation of MeOH.

Transverse-electromagnetic (TEM) and scanning transmission microscopy (STM) show uniform

pores spread over the surface of the beads. The optimum temperature for the pyrolysis of PVDC

is 1,000  C. The catalyst exhibits excellent activity and selectivity to MeOAc in MeOH carbonylation.47 A catalyst derived from Linde 13X zeolite exchange with [Rh(NH3)5Cl]Cl2 was active for

MeOH carbonylation.48

Iridium Catalysts

The use of Ir catalysis in the production of HOAc by carbonylation of MeOH has been discussed;

advantages over Rh catalysis include less propionic acid by-product formation and very little

generation of higher molecular weight derivatives of acetaldehyde.49 There are three major

catalyst systems for ‘‘acetyls’’ processes developed by BP. The first is the homogeneously promoted iridium methanol carbonylation system for acetic acid manufacturing recently

commercialized-based in the USA and Korea (CATIVA). The second is a noncommercialized

ruthenium-promoted rhodium system, also for methanol carbonylation. The third is a vaporphase reaction of ethylene with acetic acid over silicotungstic acid supported on silica giving

commercially viable activity and catalyst lifetimes for the manufacture of ethyl acetate. All three

examples illustrate the importance of exploring process conditions to reveal the advantages of new

catalyst systems, or transform known catalysts into commercial viability.50 [Ir(CO)2I3Me]À reacts

with carboxylic acids, e.g., RCO2H (R ¼ Me, Et), or H (but not with mineral acids) at elevated

temperature to cleave the IrIIIÀMe bond liberating methane; a cyclic transition state is proposed

for the reactions with RCO2H.51 Methanol carbonylation to acetic acid is catalyzed with high

rates at low water concentrations using an iridium/iodide-based catalyst. The catalyst system

exhibits high stability allowing a wide range of process conditions and compositions to be

accessed without catalyst precipitation. Two distinct classes of promoters have been identified

for the reaction: simple iodide complexes of zinc, cadmium, mercury, indium, and gallium, and

carbonyl complexes of tungsten, rhenium, ruthenium, and osmium. The promoters exhibit a

unique synergy with iodide salts, such as lithium iodide, under low water conditions. A rate

maximum exists at low water conditions, and optimization of the process parameters gives acetic

acid with a selectivity in excess of 99% based upon methanol. The levels of liquid by-products

formed are a significant improvement over those achieved with the conventional high water

rhodium-based catalyst systems and the quality of the product obtained under low water concentrations is exceptional.52 The rhodium-based Monsanto process, the CATIVA iridium catalyst

for methanol carbonylation, purification, the environmental impact of CATIVA, and cost reduction were reviewed.53

Palladium and Nickel Catalysts

Several nickel catalysts for the carbonylation of methanol have been reported,54–57 and an IR

study has been described.58 The carbonylation of MeOH to form MeOAc and HOAc was studied

using phosphine-modified NiI2 as the metal catalyst precursor. The reaction was monitored using a highpressure, high-temperature, in situ Cylindrical Internal Reflectance FTIR reactor (CIR-REACTOR).


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

The reaction of alcohols with CO was catalyzed by Pd compounds, iodides and/or bromides, and

amides (or thioamides). Thus, MeOH was carbonylated in the presence of Pd acetate, NiCl2,

N-methylpyrrolidone, MeI, and LiI to give HOAc.59 AcOH is prepared by the reaction of MeOH

with CO in the presence of a catalyst system comprising a Pd compound, an ionic Br or I

compound other than HBr or HI, a sulfone or sulfoxide, and, in some cases, a Ni compound

and a phosphine oxide or a phosphinic acid.60 Palladium(II) salts catalyze the carbonylation of

methyl iodide in methanol to methyl acetate in the presence of an excess of iodide, even without

amine or phosphine co-ligands; platinum(II) salts are less effective.61 A novel PdII complex (13) is

a highly efficient catalyst for the carbonylation of organic alcohols and alkenes to carboxylic

Cobalt Catalysts

The reduction steps on active Co sites are strongly affected by activated hydrogen transferred

from promoter metal particles (Pt and Ru). Several indications for the existence and importance

of hetero-bimetallic centers have been obtained.63 [Cp*Co(CO)2] in the presence of PEt3 and MeI

catalyzes the carbonylation of methanol with initial rates up to 44 mol LÀ1 hÀ1 before decaying to a

second catalytic phase with rates of 3 mol LÀ1 hÀ1.64 HOAc-AcOMe mixtures were prepared by

reaction of MeOH with CO in the presence of Co(II) acetate, iodine, and additional Pt or Pd

salts, e.g., [(Ph3P)2PdCl2] at 120–80  C and 160–250 atm.65


Three equivalents of Me2PR (L; R ¼ (2-(1,4-dioxanyl))methyl, (2-tetrahydrofuryl)methyl,

2-methoxyethyl)) react with [Cl2Ru(PPh3)3] to give trans-[Cl2Ru(L-1-P)(L-2-P,O)2] which can

be used for the carbonylation of methanol.66 Carbonylation of MeOH to give AcOH catalyzed by

Ru complexes such as trans-[Ru(CO)2Cl2(PPh3)2], cis-[Ru(CO)2Cl2(PPh3)2], and [H2Ru(CO)(PPh3)3]

was reported.67

Reductive carbonylation

[Rh(CO)2(acac)(dppp)] catalyst gives rates (100–200 turnovers hÀ1) and selectivities (80–90%) in

the reductive carbonylation of MeOH to acetaldehyde; this is comparable to the best Co-based

catalysts, but requires a much lower temperature (140  C) and pressure (70 bar). Addition of Ru

to this catalyst results in the in situ hydrogenation of acetaldehyde and production of EtOH.68

X-ray structure analyses of Rh(COCH3)(I)2(dppp) (14) and [Rh(H)(I)(-I)(dppp)]2 (15), where

dppp ¼ 1,3-bis(diphenylphosphino) propane, were reported. Unsaturated complex (14) possesses a

distorted five-coordinate geometry that is intermediate between sbp and tbp structures.69 Under

CO pressure, the rhodium/ionic-iodide system catalyzes either the reductive carbonylation of

methyl formate into acetaldehyde or its homologation into methyl acetate. By using labeled

methyl formate (H13CO2CH3) it was shown that the carbonyl group of acetaldehyde or methyl

acetate does not result from that of methyl formate.70

The cluster anion, [Os3Ir(CO)13]À, was prepared in 50% yield by reaction of Os3(CO)12 with

[Ir(CO)4]À. The single-crystal X-ray structure analysis shows it to consist of a tetrahedral metal

core with one of the 13 carbonyl ligands bridging. The catalytic activity for carbonylation of

Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide


MeOH was studied. Using MeI as co-catalyst, catalytic turnover numbers of 1,800 were

obtained within 14 h.71

Poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone)-Rh complex was used to catalyze the carbonylation of MeOH to

MeOAc and AcOH in supercritical CO2 at rates approximately 50% of those in liquid solution,

but with minimal catalyst leaching.72


Quantum-mechanical calculations were carried out on the migratory insertion process (2) to (4)

(both for Rh and Ir). The calculated free energies of activation are 27.7 kcal molÀ1 (Ir) and 17.2 kcal

molÀ1 (Rh), which are in good agreement with the experimental estimates at 30.6 kcal molÀ1 (Ir) and

19.3 kcal molÀ1 (Rh). The higher barrier for Ir is attributed to a relativistic stabilization of the

IrÀCH3 bond.73 The potential energy profile of the full catalytic cycle of MeOH carbonylation

catalyzed by [Rh(CO)2I2]À was explored computationally. The equilibrium structures of all isomers

of the intermediates involved in the catalytic process were calculated. The rate-determining step of

the reaction, CH3I oxidative addition, proceeds via a back-side SN2 mechanism.74 Experimental

work has confirmed the existence of the cis forms of the active catalytic species, but they do not rule

out the possibility of the trans isomers. The gas phase calculation results show that the cis isomer has

4.95 kcal molÀ1 lower free energy than the trans isomer. Conversion barriers for the isomers were

calculated.75 Density functional theory with hybrid B3LYP exchange and correlation functional has

been used to investigate the first two catalytic reactions, the oxidative addition and migratory

1,1-insertion of the Monsanto and CATIVA processes. The calculated free energies of activation

for the oxidative addition of methyl iodide to all isomers were calculated.76




Although most of the reports that have appeared since 1980 on hydroformylation of alkenes

focus on rhodium catalysts, alkene hydroformylation catalyzed by PtII complexes in the presence

of SnII halides has been the object of great interest and platinum can be considered as the second

metal in hydroformylation.77–79

These systems based in PtII complexes with phosphorus ligands have been studied extensively

mainly for the asymmetric hydroformylation of styrene, because until 1990, the platinum complexes provided the highest enantioselectivities in asymmetric hydroformylation.80,81 In the 1990s,

however, several rhodium catalysts displayed higher enantioselectivity in asymmetric hydroformylation together with higher activity and regioselectivity than Pt–Sn catalysts. The catalytic systems

based on PtII/SnCl2 are in general less active and selective than rhodium catalysts, although they

allow formation of high yields of straight-chain aldehydes from terminal alkenes.

Phosphorus ligands are crucial for the stabilization of the systems and the complex cis[PtCl2(PPh3)2] (16) is most often employed, but complexes with chelating diphosphines also have

been studied extensively. The stability of the related alkyl- and acylplatinum(II) complexes has

favored extensive mechanistic investigations based on studies of the reactivity of model complexes.

Cis-PtCl2(PPh3)2/SnCl2 systems

(i) Studies on the mechanism of catalytic hydroformylation

The isolation and molecular structures of complexes considered as intermediates in the cis[PtCl2(PPh3)2]/SnCl2 catalyzed hydroformylation of alkenes have been reported in the last ten

years. Other related PtII complexes derived from the studies of the reactivity of the species involved

have also been described. Most of the studies deal with the hydroformylation of 1-alkenes, which are

more reactive than internal alkenes. Hydrides such as alkyls such trans-[PtH(SnCl3)(PPh3)2], alkyls

such as trans-[PtR(SnCl3)(PPh3)2], and acyls trans-[Pt(COR)(SnCl3)(PPh3)2] have been suggested to


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

be involved in the catalytic process promoted by the cis-[PtCl2(PPh3)2]/SnCl2 system,82–91 according to

the catalytic cycle in Scheme 2.













Scheme 2

Among the several hydrides formed when trans-[PtHClL2] (L ¼ PPh3) (17) reacts with SnCl2,

only trans-[PtH(SnCl3)L2] (18) rapidly inserts ethylene at À80  C to yield cis-[PtEt(SnCl3)L2] (19).

At À10  C, (19) irreversibly rearranges to the trans isomer, thus indicating that the cis isomer is the

kinetically controlled species and that the trans isomer is thermodynamically more stable. At À50  C,

a mixture of (17) and (18) reacts with ethylene to give cis-[PtEtClL2] (20) and (19).

























CO promotes the cis–trans isomerization of (19), which occurs rapidly even at À80  C. This

rearrangement is followed by a slower reaction leading to the cationic complex trans[PtEt(CO)L2]ỵ SnCl3. At 80  C, this complex does not react further when kept at room temperature.

Ethyl migration to coordinated CO takes place to give several acylplatinum complexes, i.e., trans(21a)





trans-[Pt(COEt)(CO)L2]ỵ SnCl3.90 The isolation of trans-[PtCl(COPr)(PPh3)2] (21b) and trans[Pt(SnCl3)(COPr)(PPh3)2] (22) has also been reported.82 The crystal and molecular structures of

several acyl complexes (21b),82 (23),83 (24),85 (25), and (26)86 have been determined. The structures

have approximately square planar geometry, the Pt atom is in a slightly distorted square-planar

environment and shows no unusual dimensions.82,83,85,86

Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

The acyl complexes (25) and (26) have been characterized by IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR

spectroscopy. The formation of two isomers when 2-butene is used involves an isomerization

process, which is likely to be limited to the alkyl precursor complexes. The reactivity of these acyl

complexes has been tested in reactions with SnCl2, H2, HCl, and (17). From the reaction

solutions, crystals of cis-[Pt(PPh3)2Cl(SnCl3)] have been obtained and its molecular structure

has been determined by XRD. The Pt atom has cis square planar coordination, with angular

distortions due to steric factors. The strong trans influence of the SnCl3 group is confirmed by the

lengthening of the trans Pt–P distance.86

The system (23)/SnCl2, an active intermediate in the catalytic hydroformylation of 1-hexene,

has been investigated by 31P NMR spectroscopy and two species are observed at low temperature,

in equilibrium with the starting Pt complex (23). One is complex (27), and the other is a species

which does not show Sn–P coupling and which has been tentatively attributed to a complex

having chloride ions bridging the Pt and Sn metal centers. Formation of the complex (27) does

not occur when EtOH is added to the CD2Cl2 or acetone solutions.91





(27) R = n-hexyl














Stoichiometric model reactions in alkene hydroformylation by platinum–tin systems have been

studied for the independent steps involved in the hydroformylation process, insertion of the

alkene, insertion of CO, and hydrogenolysis, with use of Pt–Sn catalysts and 1-pentene as alkene

at low pressure and temperature.92

(ii) The role of the trichlorostannyl ligand in the Pt-catalyzed hydroformylation

The importance of the platinum–tin linkage in hydroformylation chemistry has promoted the

publication of several articles dealing with this subject. 31P, 119Sn, 195Pt, and 13C NMR studies

have been helpful in this aspect of the reaction.93–95

The reactions of trans-[PtCl(COR)(PPh3)2] (R ¼ Ph, C6H4NO2-p, C6H4Me-p, C6H4OMe-p,

Me, Et , Pr, hexyl, CH2CH2Ph, Me3C) with SnCl2 and SnCl2 plus H2 have been studied. The

reactions with SnCl2 alone afford a mixture of trans-[Pt(SnCl3)(COR)(PPh3)2] and trans[PtCl{C(OSnCl2)R}(PPh3)2], with the last having a tin–oxygen bond. The ligand rearrangement

reactions in the formation of an alkene hydroformylation catalyst precursor have been studied for

the reaction of cis-[PtCl2(CO)(PR3)] (28) with SnCl2Á2H2O. Complex (28) reacts with

SnCl2Á2H2O to give solutions active in catalytic hydroformylation. NMR studies including

experiments using 13CO, showed the formation of the cationic complex, trans[PtCl(CO)(PPh3)2]ỵ (29) and the anionic complexes, [Pt(SnCl3)5]3, trans-[PtCl(SnCl3)2(CO)],

and trans-[PtCl(SnCl3)2(PPh3)].93

The catalytic system (16)/SnCl2 is also highly active for the regioselective of hydroformylation

ethyl 3-butenoate. EtOH strongly inhibits the catalytic activity. In EtOH the catalytic precursor

was recovered as the acyl complex, trans-[PtCl(COCH2CH2CH2CO2Et)(PPh3)2], which is also

catalytically active.96 Internal alkenes are hydroformylated to linear aldehydes in substantial

amounts with the cationic Pt–Sn catalyst system (29)/SnCl2. By altering the nature of the

phosphine ligand, PR3 (R ¼ Bu, OPh, substituted Ph) as well as the reaction conditions the

selectivity for terminal aldehyde production can be varied widely.97 The activity of the catalytic

system (16)/SnCl2 in the hydroformylation of alkenes (1-pentene, cyclopentene, cyclohexene,

allylbenzene, styrene, methyl acrylate, vinyl acetate, and acrylonitrile) has been reported.98

(iii) Cis-PtCl2(diphosphine)/SnCl2 systems

Mono and binuclear platinum(II) complexes with diphosphines have been reported as catalysts in

the hydroformylation reaction. Dppp and related diphosphines are used as ligands in platinum/Sn

systems for the hydroformylation of different substrates.99–107


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

The complexes cis-[PtCl(Et)(diphosphine)], diphosphine ¼ dppp (30) or dppb (31), were used as

models for the hydroformylation of alkenes catalyzed by PtCl2/diphosphine/SnCl2. The reaction

of (30) and (31) with SnCl2 gives cis-[Pt(SnCl3)(C2H5)(diphosphine)], which in the absence of free

ethylene decomposes to form the species cis-[PtCl2(diphosphine)], via an unstable hydrido species.

Both the chloro- and trichlorostannate-alkyl complexes react with CO to give the acyl species cis[PtX(COEt)(diphosphine)] (X ¼ Cl, or SnCl3).99

Mechanistic studies using variable temperature HP NMR spectroscopy have been performed to

establish the role of PtÀSnCl3 bond in the CO insertion and hydrogenolysis steps of the

Pt-diphosphine-catalyzed alkene hydroformylation reaction.108,109 The formation of the fourcoordinate ionic complex cis-[Pt(Me)(CO){(S,S)-bdpp}]ỵ X, where X ẳ Cl, and X ẳ SnCl3,

bdpp ¼ (2S,4S)-2,4-bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane, has been observed through reaction with

CO. The covalent acetyl [Pt(COMe)(Cl){(S,S)-bdpp}], and ionic acetyl compound [Pt(COMe)

(CO){(S,S)-bdpp}]ỵ SnCl3, have been described.108 The reactions of alkylplatinum–diphosphine

complexes, [Pt(Me)(Cl)(bdpp)] and [Pt(Me)(SnCl3)(bdpp)], as well as [Pt{CH(CO2Et)CH3}(Cl)

(dppp)] with carbon monoxide have been studied and been observed through high-pressure NMR


Large bite angle diphosphines derived from heteroatomic xanthene-type hydrocarbons have

been used to form Pt–Sn catalyst systems. These xantphos ligands (32) combine the large bite

angle with a rigid backbone and these catalysts show high regioselectivity for formation of the

terminal aldehyde.110 Related amine, arsine and mixed phosphine–amine, and phosphine–arsine

ligands based on xanthene backbones were synthesized. The coordination chemistry and the

catalytic performance of these ligands were compared to those of the parent phosphine. Ligands

(33) and (34) have been applied in the platinum/tin-catalyzed hydroformylation of 1-octene

providing high activity and selectivity which is explained by its wide natural bite angle and the

formation of cis-coordinated platinum complexes.111

Platinum complexes [PtCl2(diphosphine)] and [PtCl(SnCl3)(diphosphine)] of the ferrocenyl

diphosphine ligands (35a), (35b), and (36) have been synthesized. Complexes [PtCl2(35)] and

[PtCl2(36)] have been structurally characterized by XRD. Both the preformed and the in situ

catalysts have been used in the hydroformylation of styrene.112

(iv) Miscellaneous

Mixed phosphines,113 phosphates,114,115 phosphinites (diphenylphosphine oxide) and related

diphenylphosphine acids,116–119 phospholes,120 and other phosphorus ligands121–123 have been

used in Pt-catalyzed hydroformylation. [PtCl2(COD)] has been used as starting material for the

preparation of catalytic precursors.114,124–126

A review on Pt-based catalysts containing phosphinous acid derivative ligands for the hydroformylation of alkenes has been published.116 Platinum complexes containing phosphinito ligands,

Ph2PO(H), afford active hydroformylation catalysts.117 Both 1- and 2-heptene were hydroformylated by [Pt(H)(Ph2PO)(Ph2POH)(PPh3)] to give products of 90% and 60% linearity, respectively.

Intermediate alkyl and acyl complexes, e.g., [Pt(COEt)(Ph2PO)(Ph2POH)(PPh3)] were isolated

and characterized.118 The reactivity of [(Ph2POHOPPh2)Pt(H)(L)], in particular the reactions

related to hydroformylation, has been reported.119 Ligands L carrying alkenyl and alkynyl groups

undergo intramolecular insertion into the adjacent PtÀH bond. Diphenylvinylphosphine initially

gives a phosphaplatinacyclopropane, which rearranges to a phosphaplatinacyclobutane complex

(37), for which the crystal structure has been determined. The crystal structure of a dimeric

inactive complexes (38) containing a phosphido and a hydrido bridge has been determined.119































Thiolate-PtII complexes, in particular dinuclear thiolate and dithiolate bridged complexes, have

been prepared and characterized a catalyst precursor in hydroformylation reactions for use as.127,128


Until recently, the hydroformylation using palladium had been scarcely explored as the activity of

palladium stayed behind that of more active platinum complexes. The initiating reagents are often

very similar to those of platinum, i.e., divalent palladium salts, which under the reaction

conditions presumably form monohydrido complexes of palladium(II). A common precursor is

(39). The mechanism for palladium catalysts is, therefore, thought to be the same as that for

platinum. New cationic complexes of palladium that are highly active as hydroformylation

catalysts were discovered by Drent and co-workers at Shell and commercial applications may

be expected, involving replacement of cobalt catalysts.




























Bimetallic catalysts involving palladium and cobalt were developed129 and reviewed by Ishii

and Hidai.130 Complex (39) in the presence of Co2(CO)8 leads to a bimetallic catalyst effective for

the carbonylation of ArI with CO/HSiEt3 to give benzyl silyl ethers. Addition of NEt3 to the

reaction system changed the distribution of the carbonylation products to 1,2-diaryl-1,2-disiloxyethanes. The former reaction proceeds via the aldehyde intermediate, while a mechanism involving the aroylcobalt complex [(ArCO)Co(CO)3(PPh3)] formed by way of a Pd–Co bimetallic

complex is proposed for the latter reaction. [PdCl2(PCy3)2] (40) was found to work as a selective

catalyst for the hydroformylation of internal alkynes to give the corresponding , -unsaturated

aldehydes (150  C, 6 h; 84% conversion, 83% yield), and the combined use of (40) and Co2(CO)8

remarkably improved the catalytic activity with little change of the selectivity (150  C, 1 h; 100%

conversion, 95% yield).

A series of low oxidation state planar, triangular clusters containing palladium, including

[Pd2Mo2Cp2(CO)6L2], [Pd2W2Cp2(CO)6L2], and [Pd2Cr2Cp2(CO)6L2] (where Cp ¼ 5-C5H5 and

L ¼ PPh3 or PEt3) were studied as homogeneous catalysts in several reactions including the

hydroformylation of 1-pentene.131

A review131 on the preparation, characterization, and reactivity of complexes (41) [MM0 (-X)(0

X )Z2L2] (M ¼ M0 ¼ Pt or Pd; M ¼ Pt, M0 ¼ Pd; X ¼ X0 ¼ Cl, SR0 ; X ¼ Cl, X0 ¼ SR0 ; Z ¼ Cl, SnCl3,

R, L ¼ tertiary phosphine) has been published. The catalytic activity of some of these complexes in

the presence of SnCl2Á2H2O as co-catalyst in homogeneous hydroformylation has been described.


Metal Complexes as Catalysts for Addition of Carbon Monoxide

Fast hydroformylation reactions using palladium were reported by Drent133,134 in 1987. Complex (42), prepared in situ from palladium acetate, dppp and CF3CO2H, catalyzed the hydroformylation of 1-octene in diglyme (CO and H2 68 bar, 100  C) to give 1-nonanal (71.9%

linearity, 100% selectivity to nonanals) with a very low amount of alkane by-product. Using

1,3-(dio-anisylphosphino)propane 76% nonanal was obtained.135 Various carbonylation reactions136 can be catalyzed by palladium complexes of the type PdX2L2 (where L2 ¼ mono- or

bidentate phosphorus or nitrogen ligand, X ¼ anion with low coordination ability). The chemoselectivity of the catalytic systems is influenced both by the ligand and the anion. Using styrene,

ketones are the main product, even in the presence of hydrogen. Using 2-phenylpropene or (E)1-phenylpropene only aldehyde formation was achieved. Aliphatic substrates give oligomeric

ketones. Catalyst systems consisting of a palladium(II) diphosphine complex with weakly or

noncoordinating counterions are efficient catalysts for the hydrocarbonylation.137 Moreover,

variations of ligand, anion, and/or solvent can be used to steer the reaction towards alcohols,

aldehydes, ketones, or oligoketones. Noncoordinating anions and arylphosphine ligands produce

primarily (oligo)ketones; increasing ligand basicity or anion coordination strength shifts selectivity towards aldehydes and alcohols. For the mechanisms of the aldehyde-producing step, Drent

and Budzelaar proposed a heterolytic dihydrogen cleavage, assisted by the anion. At high

electrophilicity of the palladium center, selective ketone formation is observed.

Structure (43) (QPCH2CH2PQ) (Q ¼ mixture of 1,4- and 1,5-cyclooctanediyl) was reported to be a

very effective ligand for the palladium catalyzed hydroformylation of internal and terminal alkenes

using small amounts of NaCl or HCl as an additive in PhOMe or diglyme as the solvent.138–141






















Cobalt carbonyls are the oldest catalysts for hydroformylation and they have been used in

industry for many years. They are used either as unmodified carbonyls, or modified with

alkylphosphines (Shell process). For propene hydroformylation, they have been replaced by

rhodium (Union Carbide, Mitsubishi, Ruhrchemie-Rhoˆne Poulenc). For higher alkenes, cobalt

is still the catalyst of choice. Internal alkenes can be used as the substrate as cobalt has a

propensity for causing isomerization under a pressure of CO and high preference for the formation of linear aldehydes. Recently a new process was introduced for the hydroformylation of

ethene oxide using a cobalt catalyst modified with a diphosphine. In the following we will focus

on relevant complexes that have been identified and recently reported reactions of interest.

Reactions of Co2(CO)8 with ferrocenylphosphine oligomers or polymers have been studied.

Detailed IR and 31P NMR studies showed that the polymeric ligands chelate Co in a tridentate

fashion when a high P/Co ratio is used. Use of such Co catalysts at 170–90  C for 1-hexene

hydroformylation showed reactivity and selectivity similar to those of Ph3P. The observed

tendency for tridentate chelation in these complexes inhibits the aldehyde-to-alcohol reduction

step.142 Addition of (dppe) or Bu2P(CH2)4PBu2 to HCo(CO)4 or Co2(CO)8 gave complexes

containing stable five-membered and unstable seven-membered rings; these were catalytically

inactive for hydroformylation of C3H6. Under the action of the hydroformylation system, the

seven-membered ring complex opened to give a catalyst of almost exactly the same activity as a

catalyst modified with Bu3P.143 The hydroformylation, aminomethylation, and hydrocarbonylation of alkenes with Co2(CO)8 and dppe using CO/H2O has been examined.144 Reaction of [(3CMe)Co3(CO)9] with (dppm) gave the cluster [(3-CMe)Co3(CO)7(dppm)] (44) which was a

catalyst for the hydroformylation of 1-pentene at 80 bar H2-CO and 110  C. The dppm bridging

ligand stabilizes and activates the cluster for catalysis.145
